So, despite yesterday's rather emotionally turbulent day, this weekend has been quite nice. I headed out this morning to finish the purchasing of materials needed for the costumes for our church's fall festival. And any day spent in the candy, I mean, fabric shop, is a marvelous day. ;)
I hit some really great deals too. For my costume, I need to make a sort of pouch to hold straw in, to make my outfit look like the gleaner Ruth was. In order to make the pouch I needed a rope, or some sort of twill belt. I stopped in at my favorite thrift shop, and found exactly what I needed. A twill belt, with metal loops, for only $1.20! Oh yeah! :D
My next stop was the fabric store, to pick up the material for my brother's costume. I walked in, and the store had a circular with coupons in it. One of the coupons was 50% off any one item, or any single cut of fabric. Jack pot my friends! I was able to buy the 6 and a half yards of broadcloth needed for just 15 bucks. Woo-hoo! :D
Oh yeah! I wanted to share the outfit I wore out and about. Normally, when headed to just the fabric store, I throw on some jeans, tee, and a hat if I'm in a hurry. But today I thought I would dress up, and look like the lady GOD made me.
I love this outfit. It's casual, but not too much. It's just a simple brown tee, blue jean skirt, and boots. To dress it up just a tad, I added a yo-yo pin that I made, and pearl earrings and necklace. Perfect for these crisp autumn days we have been experiencing. :)
How has your Saturday been?
I'm gonna get off here for now. I think homemade hot chocolate and a movie is calling my name for the evening. :D
Have a wonderfully blessed day! Thanks for stopping by!
